Rokkmommy's Taco Salad

Rokkmommy's (Fairly Healthy) Taco Salad
(quick for when you don't want to slave, and it feels like it should be worse for you)

1 pkg ground turkey (about 1-1.3 lb size)
1 pkg low sodium taco seasoning

-Cook turkey thoroughly. Add taco packet and water per directions on packet)
-While that is cooking chop!
1/2 head or so iceburg lettuce (stands up better to the meat)
2 medium tomatoes
1/2 onion
-and put these all in some kind of serving container (preferably sectioned tupperware so you can just throw the leftover in the fridge

Then get out
black olives (slice 'em if you want)
jalapeno pepper slices
shredded cheddar cheese (low fat is good, but doesn't melt as nicely)
lowfat or fat free sour cream
salsa (I love Great Value-Walmart brand-garlic lime salsa)
1 bag Tostitos baked scoops tortilla chips

Put everything out buffet style, set out the plates, and let the family go to town. They can build 'em the way they like 'em. Enjoy! (and make the kids clean it all up! =} )
